months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist figured there. president obama, because of his

romney would step in and say our foreign policy needs more of a healthy dose of international economic involvement. we have trade, for example, which i think president obama dropped the ball on for most of his four years. we therefore need a structure that allows us to get their. one would hope that, given the smart, analytical folks he might surround himself with who are used to looking at complex corporate organizations, that they would actually make some recommendations that would bring our bureaucracy into the 21st century on things as important as international economic decisionmaking, just to name one. there are many others, but that would be my sense of it. >> once again, it would probably waste the first four years. there are a lot of authorizations, when you start changing around the pieces on the table, you have to get congressional approval. for example, right now, noaa. fish or raccoons, however you might want to look at it. it makes no sense. they are trying to make some changes there. it is not as much an executive fiat, as much as needs to be done, it would be difficult

line is the same as the president's. mitt romney and has basically described the current policy as criticism. you asked how long we have. it is important to remember that iran is not on the brink of having a nuclear weapon. they have made clear progress. they are accumulating uranium at certain levels, but it was still take them at least one year to develop a nuclear device. that is likely to remain the case for some time to come. more importantly, for them to make such a move toward a device could be detected. the only way they can generate material for a nuclear device is t facilities that as are under inspection. they would get caught in plenty of time and giving americans and others to respond. we will not be caught with our pants down on us. we still have time to achieve a diplomatic outcome and let the sanctions soak in. we can find a peaceful way out of this before rushing into another war in the middle east. >> let me follow that up. the israeli government, the prime minister, at least, has challenged the united states to define a red line or else is would be able to act on
